Kobe deserves MVP, not title

Filed under: Uncategorized — Greg Gaston @ 3:36 pm

L.A. Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant is an unbelievable Basketball Talent. He also seems like a jerk. I don’t know the guy personally, but he seems reluctant to spread praise around when things are going well, and is quick to blame others when things are not so hot.
Bryant’s loser leave town feud with Shaq is legendary, and his crybaby threats in Los Angeles are known throughout the sports world. Who knows how many titles Kobe would have captured if the Diesel was still playing along side him?
This season has been incredible. Bryant wanted out of tinsel town and went public with it. Lakers G.M. Mitch Kupchak called his bluff, and soon the smoke dissipated. Eventually Jerry West’s successor went out and acquired Pau Gasol from the Grizzlies, the same Gasol who was the cornerstone of West’s teams while in the Bluff City. Gasol has made all the difference in the world and now the Lakers are in position to win it all.
With all that said I don’t want the Lakers to win because I don’t care for Bryant. I don’t like the fact that he’s basically a crybaby who probably was that kid who took his ball and went home. This does not mean I don’t think he’s a fascinating player to watch. Kobe is deserving of this season’s MVP, and you could argue that he probably should have won one or two in the past. So here’s to anyone but the lakers winning it all. When it all comes down to it, this a team sport, and Bryant is a “What’s in it for me kind of guy”.
